, barbara boxer also coming out and saying that she is going to support chuck hagel for this position. andrea. >> ruth, that clearly smooths the way because it was schumer's ambivalence and the ambivalence of other democrats, key democrats, even -- so if he weren't going to support chuck hagel, that would be a huge obstacle? >> that would have been a huge obstacle, but the cavalry was always coming, i think, i think senator schumer had concerns. i think probably excuse my cynicism here, but as a political matter with his constituency it was probably helpful for him to -- i'm not saying those concerns weren't valid and real, but also politically helpful to express those concerns, make it clear that he has done his due diligence, but i think that the chances that he was going to come out in the end or that senator boxer was going to come out in the end and -- i always thought those chances were pretty slim. now i think most certainly we'll see secretary hagel. >> kristen welker, gun control. now we're told that the event is going to be tomorrow. >> it could well be in the hour because t
